Probably not many of us who know or are familiar with the name of Nubia. In the past, roughly two to three years ago, we never tested the smartphone Nubia, but still with frills ZTE. Nubia is now present in Indonesia smartphone market with its own stand, without ZTE. There are three smartphones that they bring, and Nubia M2 series is the highest in Indonesia.


Color good. Chinese smartphone bears the title, what is offered Nubia through his smartphone’s body turned out to be very interesting. Nubia berbodi M2 is a solid smartphone which was entirely made of metal. Finishing it was very neat.

Well that might make us kesengsem is color selection. Nubia M2 is available in gold or black color cast gold. Looks quite beautiful gold color, while the black gold looks dashing and premium. The entire body is black list gold-colored decorated all over the screen edges and body behind.

AMOLED screen. Nubia M2 is one of the few smartphones in 2017 that carries AMOLED display panel. Panels of this type look very black when they died, and highly colored when lighted. In addition, the AMOLED panel also consume less power. Concerning the quality can not be doubted because this screen Full HD resolution.

Innovative UI. We do not know much about Nubia UI. The user interface is now entering the fourth version and it was impressive in Nubia M2. Display its interface is normal and there is no theme or font selection. We did not bother about it.

Because the features offered far more valuable than just appearance. Nubia UI 4.0 has features Edge gesture, where we can open the application, optimizing the RAM, increasing brightness, or switch applications simply by touching the edge or edges of the screen only. This is a new thing that rarely exists.

There is also a split screen feature that can be used for almost all applications, with the exception of the game. That way we can run two applications at the same time.

Efficient batteries. 5.5-inch AMOLED screen plus 625 Snapdragon chipset, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB of storage, as well as the 3,630 mAh battery is a combination that fits. Not too fast, but it is far from slow. Arguably efficient. The average screen-on-time generated over five hours with an active Internet and occasional gaming.

16 MP front camera. Nubia is not touting the front camera on the promotional materials. Whereas this resolution front camera is 16 MP which quality does not disappoint. There are also features to polish beautify the face that feels less than perfect.

Potential primary cameras.  The main camera Nubia M2 is one of the charms because there are two. The lenses are left-resolution 13MP sensor with RGB, aperture f / 2.0, and PDAF, while the right lens resolution of 13 MP with a monochrome sensor. By default, Nubia provide very many photo mode that allows us to produce images such as using an SLR camera.

But note, the camera mode will be useful if we could use it, because on average require little expertise. If you can use it, should you will be satisfied with the performance of the camera.


Dual-camera is not optimal. Nubia dual-camera configuration can be used to generate M2 bokeh photos. However, when compared with the quality shots of Huawei P9 or Xiaomi Mi 6, capacity is still lagging. Camera shots will slow down when using bokeh mode and the results are often less tidy.

Grip slippery.  As we mentioned at the beginning, the Nubian M2 is berbodi ciamik smartphone with a very neat finish. I was so neat, this smartphone feels very slippery especially when we use it in the air-conditioned room. To be safe, use additional casing.

Need extra promotion. Disadvantages of this one has nothing to do with the quality or performance of Nubia M2. However this is a fact that must be faced by Nubia, because in fact, there are still many who do not know this one brand. Therefore, Nubia should more aggressively move to have his name more familiar among gadget lovers homeland.
